It is clear that Liz Cheney and her January 6 Committee trotted out an unknown assistant to Mark Meadows to smear Trump with lies and gossip.
Cassidy ‘Smollett’ Hutchinson on Tuesday testified that Trump was aware January 6 rally attendees had weapons and were wearing body armor.
She also claimed that Trump lunged at a Secret Service Agent as he shouted demands.
Hutchinson said Trump reached up towards the front of the vehicle to grab at the steering wheel when SS agent Bobby Engel grabbed Trump’s arm and took his hand off the steering wheel.
Hutchinson then claimed that Trump lunged at secret service agent Bobby Engel and suggested the former president grabbed the agent’s neck area.
The Secret Service denied the report and the agents are ready and willing to testify.
NBC News White House Correspondent Peter Alexander tweeted–
🚨 A source close to the Secret Service tells me both Bobby Engel, the lead agent, and the presidential limousine/SUV driver are prepared to testify under oath that neither man was assaulted and that Mr. Trump never lunged for the steering wheel.

This woman has no credibility.
Ms. Hutchinson was planning to go work for Trump at his Mar-a-Lago residence after January 6, 2021.
When that didn’t work out, she turned on Trump and smeared him with lies.
Hutchinson absurdly claimed Trump angrily threw his lunch when he learned then-AG Bill Barr said the DOJ found no evidence of election fraud.
She also claimed Trump threw dishes several times and flipped tablecloths.
“I left the office and went down to the dining room and I noticed that the door was propped open and the valet was inside the dining room, changing the tablecloth off of the dining room table,” Hutchinson said. “He motioned for me to come in, and then pointed towards the front of the room near the fireplace mantle and the TV, where I first noticed there was ketchup dripping down the wall, and there’s a shattered porcelain plate on the floor.”
Hutchinson said she cleaned up after Trump and wiped the ketchup off the wall.
“The valet had articulated that the president was extremely angry at the attorney general’s AP interview and had thrown his lunch against the wall,” she added. “I grabbed a towel and started wiping the ketchup off the wall to help the valet out.”
Poor little Cinderella.
Trump angrily threw his lunch when he learned then-AG Barr said publicly that the Justice Dept. found no evidence of election fraud, Hutchinson says, adding, “there were several times throughout my tenure…that I was aware of [Trump] throwing dishes.” https://t.co/MCCiiZcF4H pic.twitter.com/pdIRxwLngf
